    Winemaker Notes

    Fresh, dry and delicious, making the case for bigger is better (at least in terms of volume). Bright aromatics of red cherries and raspberries give way to copious amounts of strawberry and hints of cedar on the palate.

    The wine is made from certified organic and handpicked grapes from the Murillo and Santa Cara vineyards that are an average age of 15 years old on clay-calcareous at 400 meters.

    Azul y Garanza, Spain
    Image of winery
    Built between 1940 and 1960, and partly underground, the Azul y Garanza bodega consists of small concrete tanks with capacities between 4,000 and 20,000 liters, giving a total capacity of 200,000 liters. The result is an ideal separation, during production, of the grapes according to different soils and grapes varietals. This is a fundamental ingredient in the quality of the bodega's wines. It is in this way that Azul y Garanza wines are able to express the terroir in a natural manner. To obtain this they use indigenous natural yeast of the grape during the fermentation. Also, the bottling of the wine occurs after a light clarification and without filter. In addition, the quality and origin of the oak is studied carefully.

    Just north of Spain’s famous Rioja region, Navarra excels in the production of full and fruit-dominant reds and good quality, dry rosés. Garnacha holds most of the land under vine, with Tempranillo coming in second place.

    Notoriously food-friendly with soft tannins and a bright acidity, Tempranillo is the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions and important throughout most of Spain. Depending on location, it takes on a few synonyms; in Penedès, it is known as Ull de Llebre and in Valdepeñas, goes by Cencibel. Furthermore in Portugal, known as Tinta Roriz, it is a key component both in Port and the dry red wines of the Douro. The New World regions of California, Washington and Oregon have all had success with Tempranillo, producing a ripe, amicable and fruit-dominant style of red.

    Tasting Notes for Tempranillo

    Tempranillo is a dry, red wine and produces medium-weight reds with strawberry and black fruit characteristics. Depending on growing conditions and winemaking, it can produce hints of spice, toast, leather, tobacco, herb or vanilla.

    Perfect Food Pairings for Tempranillo

    Tempranillo’s modest, fine-grained tannins and good acidity make it extremely food friendly. Pair these with a wide variety of Spanish-inspired dishes—especially grilled lamb chops, a rich chorizo and bean stew or paella.

    Sommelier Secretsfor Tempranillo

    The Spanish take their oak aging requirements very seriously, especially in Rioja. There, a naming system is in place to indicate how much time the wine has spent in both barrel and bottle before release. Rioja labeled Joven (a fresh and fruity style) spends a year or less in oak, whereas Gran Reserva (complex and age-worthy) must be matured for a minimum of two years in oak and three years in bottle before release. Requirements on Crianza and Reserva fall in between.
